Three-dimensional seismic characterization of a complex sediment drift in the South China Sea: Evidence for unsteady flow regime

Abstract:

This study describes a previously unobserved reflection seismic configuration comprising a honeycomb planform and a repeated erosion/infill cross-section, based on high-resolution three-dimensional/two-dimensional seismic data and bathymetric data. The honeycomb structures cover an area of more than 5000 km2 and are developed within the Late Miocene to recent deep-water sediments of the north-western South China Sea. Linear erosional troughs up to 10 km long and 1 km wide are widely developed...
